The Kortney Rose Foundation
The Kortney Rose Foundation (KRF) is a 501(c)(3) organization that was set up by Kortney's mom as a way to channel her grief after losing 9-year-old Kortney to a rare brain tumor called brain stem glioma. The foundation hopes to make a difference in the fight to find better treatments and ultimately a cure for pediatric brain tumors, thus creating Kortney's legacy of helping other children with brain tumors through the promise of research. In the past five years the foundation has donated more than $528,000 to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's brain tumor research efforts, specifically the hospital's Large Scale Genome Project and Brain Tissue Consortium.

Eye to Eye
Eye to Eye is a national mentoring program that pairs young students in grades 5-8 who struggle with Learning Disabilities (LD) and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) with college students who face similar learning challenges. Using an art-based curriculum, younger children learn to value their own unique minds, build self-esteem, and acquire skills necessary to become their own self-advocates. Interacting one-on-one with college mentors also allows younger students to see the potential success stories they can someday become.
Monmouth University began working toward starting a chapter of Eye to Eye last spring. Two MU students who are registered with the Department of Disability Services attended a training at Brown University last August and now serve as coordinators of the program. They have trained other MU students with learning differences to be mentors for approximately fifteen students who attend St. Jerome Elementary School in West Long Branch. Mentors and mentees meet weekly for one hour after school on Wednesdays during the spring semester.
The mission of Eye to Eye is to improve the lives of people with learning differences. Monmouth University joins many other college chapters throughout the United States who are involved in working with younger students as they come to understand, accept, and work with their own unique learning styles.
